Macquarie Generation is an electricity generation company in New South Wales, Australia that is owned by AGL Energy, and has a portfolio of generating sites using predominantly thermal coal power. The company now trades as AGL Macquarie and generates electricity for sale under contract.
AGL Macquarie supplies approximately 12% of the National Electricity Market and 30% of the New South Wales electricity market. In early stages, Macquarie has commenced development of solar thermal power as a renewable source of energy.
Macquarie Generation was established by the Government of New South Wales in 1996 under the State Owned Corporations Act, 1989 (NSW) and the Energy Services Corporation Act, 1995 (NSW) as part of the split up of the Electricity Commission of New South Wales.

The Liddell Power Station is scheduled to close in 2022.
